Terry Coneyworth, 31, of Derwent Avenue, Hull, admitted a total of 19 sexual offences charges involving the abuse of a young child, in what the officer who led the investigation described as “the most serious and disturbing case I have dealt with in my 16 years of service”.

He was sentenced to life at Hull Crown Court with a minimum eight year term, after Judge Mark Bury told him his offending showed "a grotesque breach of trust".

Detective Constable Gregg Anderson said:

Today’s sentence reflects the seriousness of Coneyworth’s abuse of his young victim and the potential danger he posed to others.

He committed the most serious sexual offences against an extremely young girl and I believe that had we not caught him when we did, he would have continued with his depraved actions.”
